The excitement never slows down for anyone who straps on a wakeboard, kneeboard, or pair of waterskates at Velocity Island Park. That's because the water sports here don't rely on boats for their source of power. Instead, it comes from an overhead cable system; a more consistent and eco-friendly alternative to traditional high-speed fun on the water. Nine acres of water stretch across the main park, but that's not the only thing you'll encounter during a full trip around the line. Optional ramps, rails, kickers, and other features dot the carefully-designed lake, challenging boarders to catch some air and try new tricks.
System 2.0, a more beginner-friendly park, sits adjacent to the main waters. Here, first-timers and kids go around three acres of water one at a time, allowing for one-on-one instruction. Velocity Island Park also has a volleyball court and a beachfront area that are perfect for lounging or constructing a sand castle that's up to local building codes.
